The 2019 Best Countries rankings, formed in partnership with BAV Group, a unit of global marketing communications company VMLY&R, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, are based on a study that surveyed more than 20,000 global citizens from four regions to assess perceptions of 80 countries on 75 different metrics. The Quality of Life subranking is based on an equally weighted average of scores from nine country attributes that relate to quality of life in a country: affordable, a good job market, economically stable, family friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system and well-developed public health system. The Quality of Life subranking score had a 17 percent weight in the overall Best Countries ranking.
 
 
1. Canada - No change for past 4 years
2. Sweden - Up 1 from # 3 in 2018
3. Denmark - Down 1 from # 2 in 2018
4. Norway - No change from 2018
5. Switzerland - Up 1 from # 6 in 2018
6. Finland - Up 1 from # 7 in 2018
7. Australia - Down 2 from # 5 in 2018
8. Netherlands - No change from 2018
9. New Zealand - No change from 2018
10. Germany - No change from 2018
 
 For the fourth consecutive year, Canada ranks No. 1 overall for providing a good quality of life. Survey respondents view the North American country as No. 1 for both being politically stable and having a well-developed public education system, and No. 2 for having a good job market, a perception supported by independent research. The North American country is seen as possessing the fifth best well-developed public health care system. In fact, Canada is rated in the top 10 in all but one of the nine attributes, affordability, where Asian countries dominate.
 
 
For the second year in a row, the United States ranks No. 17 overall by survey respondents for providing a good quality of life. Its highest ranking is for its job market, where it ranks first. Its lowest ranking came in affordability, where survey responses placed it No. 56.

All the immigrants should probably go to those countries instead then. Trump's doing them a favor by keeping them out.

BTW, of course a list that ranks based on "well-developed PUBLIC education system" and "well-developed PUBLIC health system" is going to be weighted towards "socialist" countries.

They're about as "socialist" as the policies espoused by Dems, hence the quotation marks.

Hope this helps.

Thats fukin illegal -

Size matters too.

It's easier to finance all those public programs when you don't have to provide them to hundreds of millions of citizens. The top nine countries on that list COMBINED have a smaller population than the United States. Germany at #10 is the one with a population in excess of 25 million.

It also helps that Uncle Sam subsidizes all of their national defense. They can all live in peace and sleep well at night because they know that if the worst happens and someone tries to violate their national sovereignty, Big Bro 'Murica will swoop in to save them.

Is this one of those situations where you DON'T want to talk about "per capita"?
